Small percentage for vegetable producers

Small percentage for vegetable producers

One of the complaints that stands out most among the producers of vegetables and fruits is the difference between the sale price of fruits and vegetables in large areas, and the money received by the farmer. It is a issue that becomes more acute.

For this reason, the Unió de Llauradors has echoed some devastating data, as published on their social networks: "only 19% of the total price of agri-food products goes to farmers, according to a study carried out by Unió with Eurostat food prices". In this way, the producer only obtains a fifth part of the final value, while in other countries of Europe the farmers receive 40%.

In the case of vegetables such as onions, zucchini, carrots and green peppers, the difference between the price of origin and the end remains at the same levels.

The legislative norm that regulates this situation is the Law of the Alimentary Chain, a law that Unió requests that it be reviewed by the Government.
